18th Century Dresses From Ikea Textiles

Several costumers and re-enactors have been making 18th century dresses using duvet covers from Ikea. The patterns resemble 18th century cotton prints; some are re-creations of 18th century prints.

The list below provides the name of the Ikea pattern and dresses made from that textile. (Many of these fabrics are old enough that Ikea no longer sells them, so you can click on the pattern name to search eBay to find out if any are available.)

In addition to these Ikea duvet covers, there are also some Ikea curtains that have patterns that resemble 18th century printed cottons, like INGMARIE and ALVINE KNOPP. The curtains seem to be a lighter-weight fabric than the duvet covers; I don't think I've seen dresses made from these fabrics, but if you've seen one online, let me know.
